According to Nintendo Power, it's Sonic 1, 2, 3 and S&K (w/ lockon for 2 and 3). Awesome that we have a port for the DS now (without having to resort to emulation).

So happy they decided to make a portable version of Sonic 2. Hopefully it has the same music and won't be screwed up like Sonic Genesis on GBA.

Sonic Classic Collection for DS is not going to have the multiplayer modes that were in Sonic 2 and Sonic 3, so you'll still have a reason to download the Virtual Console versions or buy the GC Mega Collection.

@Clinker: That's a definite "ouch!" W/ the capabilities of the DS, such a thing would be plausible, so it would be somewhat of a shame if the multi wasn't included.

On the other hand, I very rarely ever have used my DS in multiplayer of any (DS) game. I'm never @ a hot spot, when on the road, & @ home, it's a pain to connect the system to my/the (home) net(work). Not to mention, you have to be playing the DS close to an access point, for play @ home, & my consoles are right near-by, so for me, it's not, but almost completely pointless.

But's it's always still worth it, if the game(s) is/are fun.

Just got it, and it's really cool. I had a Game Gear with Sonic, Sonic 2, and Chaos, so this is definitely a plus for me.
